On Tuesday night, December 21, 2021, America producer and record executive, Jay-Z, made an appearance in a Twitter Spaces conversation with Alicia Keys.
Former editor of MTV news, now crowned Head of Art Relations of lyric platform Genius, Rob Markman, asked Jay-Z if he’d ever take the Verzuz stage. Jay-Z responded with a clear and promising stance that “No one can stand on that stage with me”.
To make his position even more solidified, he wrote further “It’s not a chance in hell that anyone can stand on that stage with me”. After the comment was posted via Twitter by Tidal, it caught Lil Jon’s attention.
Jon’s response, “Busta will smoke Jay-Z”, he wrote to Hollywood Unlocked.
Recalling a September live hosted by Fat Joe, Joe revealed that everyone would love to see Busta on a Verzuz stage but had to accept that it may not happen anytime soon given the reality that everyone is scared of Busta.
Fat Joe goes on to explain that ““You gotta understand, sometimes you ever notice, you see boxers and they knock everybody out? People are scared to fight those boxers. Busta Rhymes is gonna out-rap, out-perform anybody that goes up in the Verzuz with him. That’s a fact!”
According to sources, Busta Rhymes was actively looking for artists to take him on in a Verzuz battle. After coming close to a possible match with T.I, Busta spoke to Complex and revealed he’d take on other music icons like Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Jay-Z
